Winner, Winner, Chicken Dinner Open Thread

I was thinking today about how four short years ago I was a Trump-skeptic. I didn’t think he was seriously running and even if he was I didn’t believe he would get very far. I figured he would drop out before Thanksgiving.

Here is where I freely admit that I misunderestimated Donald John Trump.

Then today I saw this comment over at Don Surber’s place:

I love the fight in our President!!

Suddenly I had an epiphany. Or maybe it was just a bad acid flashback. I dunno. But I suddenly realized something. I don’t support Donald Trump because he fights.

Polls from 2016 showed that the number one reason Trump supporters gave for supporting Trump was “Because he fights.”

Speaking only for myself, I support Trump because he wins.

Which would you rather have, a bodyguard who gets his ass kicked trying to protect you or a bodyguard who kicks some ass protecting you?

You know why the Left keeps attacking Trump’s alleged rhetoric (He’s a meany) and his sexual history? Because they ain’t got nuthin’ else. Democrats won’t even mention the economy right now, but let the stock market crash and they won’t stop talking about how it was all Trump’s fault.

Not one of the dire predictions the Left made about Trump winning has come true. The stock market didn’t crash, the economy didn’t tank, we’re not dying from the fallout from Trump’s nuclear war, gays have not been rounded up and forced to undergo conversion therapy, and while there are indeed mobs of fascist thugs using violence and intimidation to take control of our streets, Antifa is the terrorist wing of the Democrat party.

    I was a Trump sceptic too, at first. I just didn’t take him seriously. The Republican prospects at the time were so dismal, and then I realized Trump was an Independent, running as an R, and I got onboard that train. What a ride! Not tired of winning!!

  4. Mothy67 says:

    I liked Walker and Cruz, but didn’t think either stood a chance against the !yeb¡ machine. I went all in for Trump when he came down the escalator. Had he not gotten the nom president would have been hillary or jeb. Same thing with slightly different hues. Well worth the risk.

  8. Somebody says:

    My husband was on the Trump train from the beginning. I figured he’d crash and burn and we’d end up with Jeb or perhaps one of the others. I wasn’t really for anybody early on, just checking them all out. I liked DJT’s no BS, truth bomb dropping style, but didn’t think he’d make it because of it. He cleared the field pretty quickly, by the time FL voted it was only he and Cruz…..easy choice.

    I’m tired of hearing how mean he is. He has taken more shit than any POTUS I can remember. Is he just supposed to take it all and smile? My sister always comes back to “He’s a bully”, I get so tired of it. In her opinion he should be meek and mild because he’s POTUS. 🙄 Apparently unbeknownst to me, my sister has lived in a cave or under a rock for decades 🙄

    My mom listens to FNC 24/7, she constantly says she doesn’t like his style but he seems to be a fairly effective POTUS……fairly effective? Sheesh 🙄

    Next time my sister starts yelling about bully, I’ll correct her and tell her he’s a winner 😂

    • DeniseVB says:

      Just ask sis, would you rather be told the truth brashly or lied to politely ? POTUS is no bully, he’s the tough love kinda of parent this country needs. 🙂

  9. taw46 says:

    I liked Cruz but didn’t think he could win. I was the same as Tim, I was all in for Trump when he came down that escalator. And it was because he spoke the truth about immigration/invasion. That did it for me. For years I was frustrated that Congress did nothing about it and most Americans weren’t even aware of what was going on at the border. The only one who spoke up before that was Sessions, and unfortunately it was at night when he was speaking to an empty Senate chamber. I believe that is why Sessions was an early supporter of Trump, he knew we needed to address immigration and Trump was the only one willing to do it. And of course Stephen Miller worked for Sessions, then went over to Trump’s campaign.

    • taw46 says:

      And not just the border and illegals. It was also the refugees Obama was bringing in, nearing a million a year. And where they were from. Sneaking them in, MSM didn’t report much on that. I get mad all over again thinking about that pos Obama.

    I was a latecomer to Trump. It broke my heart to vote against the first woman who had a real chance to become POTUS. I don’t regret doing it, but I still haven’t forgiven Hillary for being someone I just couldn’t vote for.

    • DeniseVB says:

      Looking at the female Dem2020 candidates, I’m quite sure our first woman POTUS will be a conservative. 🙂

      • Constance says:

        I sure hope so. I don’t see Pence as presidential so 2024 should b a free-for-all on the Republican side again.

        • Mothy67 says:

          I’d vote for him if he were the nominee, but it’s about turnout and I don’t see him motivating enough non political types. Who knows the dims will probably reinvent themselves a hundred times between now and then.

    I jumped on to the ‘Trump Train’ before DJT was even at the bottom of the escalator. And I’m still there. 🙂

    • DeniseVB says:

      I was with him since the 80’s 🙂

      • Dora says:

        So was I, but I didn’t know there was a Trump Train back then. 🙂

      • Mothy67 says:

        Not me. I was in high school and college during Reagan and a bit on the lib side. Not crazed lib. I got cured late 80’s by transferring to Temple U. Looking back it reminds me a bit of today’s academia. I did nothing and got decent grades. When vmom was checking out schools for KTE I tried to dissuade her from there. Pitt is same price, but such a better school.
        Anyhow I thought Donald was a bit too garish and part of 80’s excess. I began to thaw during the birther movement. No one was taking a stand against the fraud and having grown up very Catholic ( not so much dogma as the nuns shaping my world view) The slobbering and deification of 44 I found disturbing. I started listening to him and was in awe of his humor. I reread The Art of the Deal and gained a ton of respect for him especially how he spoke of his brother.
        2015 it was obvious it was killary and jeb. I liked Walker but knew it was a fool’s errand. Thought the primaries/debates were VP auditions. A who pulled well where and with what demos.
        Had it been jeb or the monster from Chapaqua i think I would have stayed home. Then came the escalator and I figured why not really nothing to lose.i hadn’t gotten over what they did to Palin. That’s how I remember it. Over 4 years ago!

    “All this talk about the president defying the Supreme Court — which he has not done. Which I would have done. Which he has not done. And his decision to husband the data on citizenship and non-citizenship that our departments and agencies have in the executive branch. On and on and on: That he’s going to be a dictator, how he’s going to defy this, how he’s going to — and yet, it is Nancy Pelosi. It is Nancy Pelosi who just put out the word to at least one million illegal aliens who have been administratively adjudicated by administrative law judges in the immigration world, to be deported. She just told them to defy these judges. And nobody but me will call her the fascist that she is. That’s right, I said it! Now, if she wants to leave Congress and become a radical left-wing lawyer — first she has to get a law degree — and represent illegal aliens, that’s one thing. But to use her status as the speaker of the House of Representatives to encourage illegal activity and the defiance of administrative law judges is beyond the pale.”

    I thought he would either be drummed out by the establishment OR he would become ‘teflon’. Each week would bring a new opportunity for Teflon Don to become even MORE Teflon.

    By the time ‘Pussy Grabbin’ became famous, he was ever more protected by the Teflon.

    The left should have released the Pussy Grabbin’ tape while Trump was on his way down the escalator, and even then I’m not sure it would’ve taken him down, but it would’ve been the only chance.

      They underestimated him, Hillary wanted to run against him 😂 The media aided her by giving him lots of free press and he played them like a finely tuned 🎻
      Just goes to show how completely out of touch and utterly lacking in political skills Hillary is.

      In fact there were many republicans who feared DJT was a plant FOR Hillary. That he’d knock off all the others and then roll over. Seriously that was a theory on the right.

      2016 was bar none the best election ever! It was one giant thrill ride and I’m still not tired of winning!

    In my Freshman year my music composition prof. said the following, which I’ll NEVER forget:

    “The record buying public responds to ONE thing and one thing only: sincerity.

    If you don’t believe a note you’re writing, then your listeners will hear your inauthenticity and never believe another note you write. And neither will I. Better that you not hand in any assignment at all than give me something that sounds like a lie”

    Trump, for all his flaws, ALWAYS sounds authentic. That is not lost on anyone, no matter how hard they try to deny it.

  48. John Denney says:

    When I first saw Trump front and center at the first debate, gesturing wide with his arms as if to say, “I don’t know why they put me front and center, but ok, here I am”, I was mildly amused. I’d seen snippets of The Apprentice, and that was all I knew about him.

    My guy was Dr. Ben Carson.

    Then in the ensuing weeks I started seeing wild headlines about Trump saying or doing terrible things. Really? I was stunned that a candidate could be so disgusting, and so I sought understanding, digging deep into the stories to find out what was up with this sociopath.

    What I found time after time was that the stories were false or misleading. And on and on it went, week after week. I had never seen a person so malevolently attacked by the media.

    The classic was when he tweeted that the FAKE NEWS media are the enemy of the people. The FAKE NEWS media immediately validated his tweet by reporting that he had said the free press is the enemy of the people.

    Not only was he being attacked, but also his followers. I remember one headline, something like, “elderly female protester with oxygen tank assaulted and knocked down at Trump rally, five arrested”

    But the headline was misleading, implying 5 Trump supporters and assaulted her. The body of the story was actually two stories, one of the woman being assaulted by one Trump supporter, who was not arrested, and a brief blurb that five people had been arrested on various charges like trespassing. Trespassing implies they were anti-Trump protesters, not Trump supporters. See how devious that is?

    I wanted to know more about the assault on the little old lady on oxygen, so I did more diligent web search and found the story in a local news outlet.

    The rest of the story (not reported in MSM):

    After the rally ended, an elderly couple who had just celebrated their 50th wedding anniversary were making their way back to their car, the woman leading her nearly blind husband by the hand. The elderly female protester accosted them, badgering them, and when she allegedly touched the nearly blind old man, he flailed out with an arm saying, “Leave us alone!”
    He happened to connect, knocking her to the ground.
    BTW, he was several years her senior.

    So seeing all these attacks, reading what Trump actually said and did, I came to respect and appreciate him.

    When I first started posting about stuff like this on Facebook, critics were calling me a racist, misogynist, xenophobe supporter. I said no, I’m a truth supporter, and the media has been lying to you and suppressing the truth!

    And still it goes on.

    I thought the President’s 4th of July celebration speech was terrific, but a web search for a transcription turns up his faux pas of saying “airports” instead of “ports” in page after page of results. No MSM published the transcript; I know of only two sites that did.

    • Myiq2xu™ says:

      People misspeak from time to time. It’s okay to mock and laugh when it happens. But the media acts as if when Trump misspeaks he really meant what he said.

    Biden Renews The ‘Keep Your Plan’ Lie With Obamacare 2.0

    f you like your health care plan, your employer-based plan, you can keep it. If in fact you have private insurance, you can keep it,” said Joe Biden in Iowa on Monday as he unveiled his plan to turbocharge Obamacare.

    Wait, have we heard this before? Oh, right, it was President Obama pitching the original version of Obamacare, with a lie so egregious PolitiFact named it “Lie of the Year.”

    “And this brings us to the final, most shameless hypocrisy.

Thus their calls for “hate-speech” exclusions to the First Amendment, which as our universities have demonstrated for decades, mean censorship based on political ideology and standards of offense determined by the subjective or neurotic feelings of politically favored “victims.” Thus the barrage of question-begging epithets like “racist” and the rest, which by now are empty of meaning and function as verbal smog intended to shut people up and pollute political discourse with toxic emotionalism and bathos.

    As for Trump, once again he has said what many Americans think, but seldom hear from the Republican elite. And he has stood up for those same Americans who love their country, not because it’s perfect, not because they think its history is sinless, but because it has in word and deed shown itself to be the “last best hope” we fallen mortals have in a tragic world. And most of all, we love America because it is who we are, its ideals the unum that allows the pluribus to become a people yet keep its diversity. There’s not much more we can expect from imperfect human beings.”

    I’m going to make the assumption any challenges to the Broad Squad (H/T to Michelle’s Mirror) will have to come from within the Democrat Party. Nancy Pelosi said a glass of water with a D after its name” could get elected in AOC’s district. Pressley’s district has been rearranged recently, but the geographic area has been represented by Democrats for a 100 years. It’s Ed Markey’s home district. Omar is from the most heavily Democrat district in Minnesota. She’s the second Muslim they’ve sent to congress so that must be a strong demographic, too. Tlaib represents Detroit and Dearborn. Dearborn, being the largest Muslim enclave in the US, isn’t likely to replace her with a Republican. The best hope we have of breaking up “the Squad” is to replace AOC and Pressley. A sensible Democrat could oust them. Oman and Tlaib are going to be a faction their own party will have to deal with. Neither one of them are the media darling AOC is. Yes, I’m a racist and a misogynist for suggesting they need to go back to whatever they were doing before they got elected to anything.

      If you look beyond the “Whores of Babble On” (H/T lateblum), you can see their chiefs of staff. All connected to a nefarious organization that rhymes with Buslim Motherhood. Tlaib replaced the American flag in her office with the Palestinian, Omar is straight outta hell with ties to Somalian terrorist groups, Pressley and AOC to MB as well. These four are bringing that influence into our government as elected officials thsnks to Obama funneling ‘refugees’ into their respective states

        I’m not familiar with other districts, but Pressley’s has an interesting past. A lot of it used to be in the congressional district home to people like JFK, Tip O’Neill, and Ed Markey. When MA lost a congresscritter, the 5th was split up with a lot of it going to the 7th. For 10 terms the 7th had been represented by Michael Capuano. Capuano was making noises about primarying Elizabeth Warren the next time she came up for re-election, and then suddenly he was defeated in his own primary by Pressley, a city councilwoman from Boston. Pressley ran unopposed in the general election. Whenever someone tries to primary Warren, he or she ends up consigned to oblivion. Now that Pressley has served her purpose, it’s anybody’s guess whether the MA Democrat Party will stick with her or not. That geographic district has been the launching pad for a lot of big name careers although it’s changed its number so often you need a map of Boston to follow it. They may or may not want to launch her. She’s hardly in the same strata as JFK and O’Neill.

    Is this Bizarr-o World?
    After another violent weekend that saw eight people killed and at least 32 others wounded, one lawmaker is taking action by encouraging his constituents to arm themselves.

    Bullets from a shooting that left a 22-year-old dead in the Austin Neighborhood on the West Side Sunday also found State Rep. La Shawn Ford’s (D-Chicago) car. Bullets were also found down the block, lodged in a love seat in a nearby home in the 800 block of North LeClaire Ave.

    Ford tells The Mancow Show on WLS-AM 890 that he is encouraging his residents to arm themselves against the violence.

    “I think about it all the time,” Ford said of the shootings that plague his community. “That’s why I’m working with a concealed carry instructor and we’re going to go through the neighborhood and we’re going to encourage people to get their concealed carry license because it makes no sense for people not to have the protections that they need.”
    Well this is going to throw a wrench into all sorts of anti-gun plans.

      So I guess he won’t be a D-Chicago much longer. Calling for concealed carry in the ‘hood might make it difficult for this state rep to push for the anti-gun legislation of the Left.

      Gun bans seem to favor the criminals. Sorta like banning cars to keep drunks off the road. Or something.

    I see myiq is working in the barn this morning, glad I checked 😀 A new thread should be coming soon? No pressure there, right? 😀

      Sounds promising. I will save my rant about how the Democrats deserve everything that has happened to them, for the new post.😎

      • lateblum says:

        Swannie, your rants are always worth reading twice! You could always post something here and duplicate it in the next thread for those who missed it the first time and for the rest of us who’d like to read it again! ❤️

    Nice crowd of women in King of Prussia which is part of the Main Line outside of Philly (Chelsea’s MIL was a representative from the area)
